Buzz was interred at Wiefels and Son Funeral Directors in Palm Springs. Etta Dunn Berkeley was named as executor and sole beneficiary of her husband's estate, which was valued at $100,000 even. Eight years after Buzz's death, he was paid tribute to during the opening ceremonies of the 1984 Olympic Games at the Coliseum in Los Angeles. Etta lived on for more than two decades after Buzz's passing, well into her nineties. Sadly, financial hardship may have been the instigating factor in her decision to auction off most of Buzz's personal property. Years after his passing, Hollywood and cable channels such as Turner Classic Movies remembered Buzz whenever a tribute to the heyday of 1930s musicals was held. In Hollywood, nothing could be more appropriate than the inclusion of “Busby Berkeley” to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce's Walk of Fame.
